Corazon Indomable, #47, Tuesday, 07/16/13 We need a miracle and a miracle we get…hopefully
At long last, Don Ailing finds out Maricruz is his daughter. And his crying is breaking my heart as he desperately squeezes MC to his chest.
You probably did not see the previews we saw, but I think they were Univision's attempt at black humor. As soon as we ended on the hopeful note of the doc telling Mari that Don Ale could live for YEARS, we get a preview of...well, let's just say tomorrow will not be a happy episode.
Mari now has power of attorney (and will soon inherit) ALL of Don Ale's fortune and ALL his MANY casinos. Someone, please tell me why she is wasting time and energy on Isla Dorada? She's got a baby, a sister, a nephew, a father, and a mega fortune to worry about. Bring one or few of the management staff from one of the MANY other casinos (that apparently are being run well, by honest people), promote them, and have them deal with running Isla Dorada and keeping an eye on minor partner Carola. I know, I know. That would make too much sense.
I just feel like I'm being cheated. Yes, cheated! Cheated of tender moments between Mari and her father; Mari and her child; Mari and her sister and her nephew; etc. The are plenty of capitulos and time for revenge and fighting. But give me the good stuff too, please writers.
Vivi - yes I feel very cheated. And these other characters floating around to be developed, ack. As you said yesterday, most of the unfortunate people in this TN are not worth knowing.
While I don't mind that Lucifera was gaslighted, I really don't ever need to see creepy again until they put him in jail or kill him off.
It's been very frustrating how they've interacted with Don Ailing.
And I am so mad at Univision for pretty much dashing our hopes with the Avances. Though I suspected he was on the way out since CE has a role in La TempesBAD.
Again, I am left wondering where we are going with the Solita plot.
And Karen, AMEN! Can't we just get rid of Ew now?
I too was puzzled at Don Ale's constant sedation. For someone who has heart problems you not supposed to give so much sedative because of the condition, if they tired the body shuts down and eventually one fall asleep anyways.
I understand Don Ale's wish for the attorney so he can leave his affairs in order and leave everything to MC, and it took sooo long to get him one, pffff.
ITA with you Vivi feeling cheated out of a lot of happy and tender moments and family reunions. Writers please sby give MC the hint or a light bulb moment to bring the nina to the hospital if possible so at least Aube can hold her for one last time!
What is this sudden attraction to Luciafer on Euwwwsebio's part?? Not that I mind it they deserve each other, but come on, he worked there for years and suddenly developed feelings? Que?
I don't comment much on this series because of the severe improbabilities, but this episode was really getting to me. Don Alejandro should have known Maricruz' identity long ago. Finding out in front of Carola was not the best of timing for many reasons including the future accusations she's going to throw at Maricruz.
Ewsebio and Luciafer deserve each other. They'll be a younger version of Aurelia and Cristobal of La Esposa Virgen.
This episode annoyed me so much, it was a difficult recap to write.
I didn't see the previews, but I already knew of Don Ale's fate... I'm sorry for the ones that got spoiled, Univision really likes to toy with its viewers.
I guess I would feel cheated too, but I'm not invested in any of the characters except for Solita, so I mostly roll my eyes at the stupidities they utter and brush them off like Mejia-isms.
Karen, I think I have a twisted mind because I want to see what Ew does with Lucia, his sudden infatuation with her is almost laughable, especially the fact that he's so sure a stuck up woman like his patrona would ever aknowledge his presence as more than a peon doing her dirty work.
Jarifa, I love the "pilotontos" part, it came to me several days ago but I always forgot to add it.
Irisz, seeing Don Ale struggle to talk to MC, wanting to put his affairs in order and being shut down every time he was awake long enough to put two words together really made me mad. What is the point of telling him the truth if you can't talk about it after? Ugh...
And what is this notion that an open heart surgery might save his life? Why hasn't his city doctor suggested this already? Have I missed something?
Yesterday , I read this quote : " The best revenge is forgiveness." However, I do not think that Mari would buy this idea.
I am glad that Solita survived the breech birth, and her baby is so cute.
Ewww is unbelievable. Talk about delusions of grandeur and the effects of alcohol on the brain. Perhaps he is turning belated attention to crazy , maximad Lucia because his favorite helpless victim Solita is now out of his reach. No matter how sorry we feel for Solita, at least she has escaped from his creepy clutches.
Ed continues to be a legend in his own mind. Juaever.
Susanlynn- You are so right that Solita is SO much better off now than before. I never want Ewsebio to touch or even leer at her again. I never want him to know he has a child by her. Other than missing MC, she is pretty darned happy these days. I think the baby may make up for MC being gone all the time too.
I am glad Don Ale finally convinced MC to get the notary so that he could actually get his affairs in order before he dies. The last thing he, and we, would want is a legal battle between Mari and Carola, or anyone else who might challenge Mari's legitimate claim.
It's a shame that they didn't get a chance to clarify exactly what happened between Don Ale and Lupita. Mari still has some weird impression that Don Ale just let them go and didn't care enough to find them. And she thinks this despite her grandpa telling her Lupita was the one who ran away and cut him off from Mari; and seeing the letters from Ale and knowing that all he has wanted in life is to be reunited with his daughter, and has had a detective on the case (a very bad/slow detective). The man never even looked at another woman, remarried, or had any other kids, because he didn't want anyone to get what should rightfully be his daughter's. I hope Mari has dropped the bitter attitude about that now.
So Ewsebio has a thing for Luciafer now. I am really hoping that she actually lowers herself and goes for it. I know that it would be gross and disgusting, but I dislike them both and they deserve each other.
You would think the writers could have given us at least a few episodes with MA and Don Ale being able to enjoy a true daughter father relationship. It seems the writers just pile on the suffering and have given very little on the positive front.
This is my first TN so I don't know the actors like the rest of you but Ed's hair is so perfectly coiffed, and doesn't seem to move, that I am convinced he must be wearing a hair piece, a la Ted Danson in Cheers!
Cathyx- Do you and I have to have another talk about who CdlF belongs to? ;-)
See, my crazy is far worse then yours...
But you know what? Since this is as pretend as pretend can get, I don't mind sharing him... every now and then :)
I hope Euwsebio does violate mad Lucia which results in an offspring - spawn of two of Satan's minions.
Lucia might be reduced to living in a mud hut on the outskirts of the ranch. What I keep on wondering is where MA/MC will live at the end of this dramedy: the condo, the casino, Don Ale's mansion or the ranch with Octavio.
If I were writing the ending, she would live in married bliss with deformed one since he is the only male defending the virtue of all women in this TN.
Oh, please name the baby...
He is infatuated with her and is preparing for his love declaration.
[is this supposted to be part of the comic relief? It's working for me.] LOL--Comic relief indeed. This is a serious show so maybe the writers put that in exactly for a little comic relief.
EWW-sebio y Lucifer, what a hoot. Yes, I think that the whiskey has damaged his brain.
Sarah C.---But could she just let the poor man talk? Good God.---Maybe it's because you can understad the dialogue and I can't but I saw it the exact opposite as you. For the last two or three nights, everytime Maricruz tried to make her case against Corola, he shut her down. That was with most every sentence. You could see the look of disguest and disappointment on MC's face. I didn't see any difference last night. It looked to me like even in the very weakened condition that he was in, he still seemed to
be very much in control.
Carvivlie---Your first novela? Mine
was about a dozen ago and I still consider myself somewhat new as there are many actors and actresses
that I still haven't seen. I have to say that after my first one, I was hooked, my guess is that you will be too. So her's wishing happy novelas to you for both now and in the future.
Ed's hair---Ed's hair doesn't move
because he has half a jar of grease on it. Oh, that pillowcase.
The Caray blog is set up for opinions both pro and con as well as they are presented tastefully. After the advances last night several have expressed their displeasure. I have a different take and have been prepairing myself for the wrath that may come my way but as I said, both pro and con, so this is the way I see it. I will read and consider all opposing views. Here goes-----I don't think that the writers are trying to be mean or cruel to us with the death of Don Ale tonight. He has served his purpose. He has found his long lost daughter, has seen his grandaughter, however briefly, and has given Maricruz the power of attorney over his businesses. It's time for his exit
either stage right or stage left. His goals have been accomplished, so he exits tonight. A former name
for this novela was La Venganza, not Happy Family. Big Don had stated that he didn't think that Maricruz could handle or had enough experience to handle the casino [or casino's] and assume ownership of his estate, so now it's going to be make or break time for her. From now on,she'll be on her own. I know, I know that we wanted
to see several happy family scenes
but as I said, the name of this novela is not Happy Family. One good thing that might come in the future---Could it be that some way
Solita and Maricruz could end up as partners or at the very least, working together running the business? Even if that dosen't happen, I think that we will see some of the happy family that we missed with Papa Ale when we see Solita's son and Mari's daughter happily playing together in the big yard at the mansion.
However, intrigued by the possibility that Lucia might have to surrender to Eusebio's grimy seduction as a way of ensuring his silence. Now THAT'S revenge.
"...Maybe if you spent more time with her, my dear..."
I must admit, I was so happy with the Dr.'s optimism about don Alejandro and then stunned by the avances. Sorry gringo, I can't share your rather cold acceptance,
"He has served his purpose."
I'm looking forward to seeing Eusebio's seduction technique. I don't think that rape will be an option with Lucia. Maybe he should start with a shower and change of clothes... Oh, and he might want to lose the little whip.
a writer's point of view and from a story line point. Not trying to be cold but I thought that his death would come soon so that Mari would be completely on her own in a sink or swim senerio with no help
Regarding Don Ale's death, I guess the reason I'm so disappointed that we will have no further bonding scenes is that it would be a nice break from MA fighting and yelling at everyone... a little less vengeance and a little more love...at least for one or two episodes.
As we see him go though, and the story turns to MC trying to run the place, make a name for herself and seek her vengeance, we're left with a lot of side story characters you just don't feel that vested in. Maybe that will come, but the recent additions the last couple weeks have left me cold.
And the main charecters, well as a villainess, Carola is sort of Meh, and even Luciafer has been the same cranky one-note. Face it, we love villians who just the one step short of over the top--oh heck some over the top are down-right fun to watch if done right ( the Purple Queen Carlota, Fedra in Llena, etc).
I hope the writers start moving the plot, get us interested in these side plot characters or this may be a long journey. I'm getting a bit worried.
Wasn't it about the third episode in which he exited by shooting himself?
Count me among those as well that were frustrated with MC not carrying out Papa's request. How hard is it to call Tobias--that man is like family to him. That was absurd.
I guess he will revert to villain status in that one because of that voice.
